Q: What does the website migration service entail? Will my website be safe?
A: The web site migration service that we are offering is free of charge (to a certain extent). We’ll migrate your website(s) to our high–end cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from personal experience that swapping hosting providers can result in lost data and unwanted downtime. This is why we’ll accomplish all that for you at no cost!We’ve got accomplished administrators whose sole task is to ensure that your web site functions precisely as it did on your old web hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–built sites, as well as sites that are based upon famous apps like WordPress and Joomla™.
Q: Just how long will it take for my web site to be transferred over to your platform?
A: There are lots of factors to bear in mind – the overall amount of web files, the size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our website migration experts, etc. That being said, we do our very best to accomplish all website migrations in a 48–hour time frame. Smaller sites are migrated faster – usually within 24 hours.
Q: Do you require anything from me before you start transferring my website?
A: Yep. We’ll require the name of the website that you wish us to transfer. We will also require a means to log into your present hosting account so that we can get the content associated with your website.
Q: You will access delicate data. How can I be sure that you won’t abuse it?
Q: Will my website be offline during the migration?
A: Your web site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your old web hosting provider. After we are through with the migration, your web site will be configured to work on our system and we will alert you to preview it. If everything is functioning properly, all you will have to do is update the name server records associated with your domain name. Your website will be transferred over to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my current hosting provider have to do anything?
A: While we transfer your website content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We will not touch base with them in any way.
Q: Does it matter what platform my present provider is using?
A: Yes. We support all standard Linux–powered hosting platforms. We do not support Windows–driven hosting platforms, because we do not offer Windows hosting solutions ourselves.Furthermore, we do not support proprietary web site building and administration interfaces such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
